[Bf-committers] Blender server upgrades

It seems I found a few things of concern while digging relating to file
permissions in the file system:


Apparently there are some root owned files and directories, one of which
was that object file, as well as it's directories. Likely the permissions
are blocking things, and should be reset to www:www.

That said, it's possible that some cron based tool in the system could also
be generating root owned files, but anything invoked from the webserver
would most certainly need to be owned by www. If root files are an issue,
we should be able to solve via a umask in the system.
That said, we may need to go through and just verify that there were no
repo corruptions from being unable to pack files, but I am not sure that is
a problem with these particular files in git.

A quick check on file timestamps suggests that the problem may have
actually started around January 9th, or earlier, which is before the
upgrades happened. Most likely the two had nothing to do with each other,
which is good to know:



Anyway, I will probably avoid touching this personally, pending approval of
Sergey and folks, but we at least know where the problem lies now.
